LG Wink series to be actually called Cookie in Europe
We recently introduced you to the latest Wink touch handsets by LG. Well, it turns out the LG Wink series will actually be called Cookie in Europe. The phones will be the same however the Winks may have Wi-Fi in some regions.
Okay, so on Monday LG announced three Wink phones - affordable touch operated feature phones. Great, a successor to the Cookie series, right? Well, it turns out they will be part of the Cookie series when sold in Europe but will be marketed as Wink elsewhere.
And while the original press release makes no reference to Wi-Fi, now that we received the detailed specs sheets, it seems that the Wink Style T310 and the Wink 3G T320 phones sold outside of Europe will have two versions - with Wi-Fi and without Wi-Fi. The carriers can choose which one they want. The LG Wink T300 doesn't have the Wi-Fi option, just like its European Cookie T300 cousin.
If you're confused we don't blame you - we were confused too, while trying to spot the differences between the original press release and the new info. And the Wi-Fi thing means you'll have to be careful when buying an LG Wink - check if your carrier went with the Wi-Fi option or not. Of course, if you're buying a Cookie, that won't be of any concern as all the three new Cookie won't have even a hint of Wi-Fi connectivity.
